Just doing some late night browsing some of the online stores and came across these.

I have never seen them before, is this a gimmick to get me to spend my money or do they work. I've seen a lot of heli pictures but I can't say that I've seen on a bird yet.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

I doubt Ron's heliproz south would sell them if they didn't work. but then again, I've been wrong before.

check them out. (everybody likes someone else to test a new item.)

Take a look at the MA head. It essentially has flybar stiffeners built in. Looks to be about the same idea, just an afterthought instead of something that was incorporated in the initial design.

Nothing new about them,my friends have had them on their raptors for years.

Weather they actually do anything is another matter

I used them on an xcell pro then tried without them.I could definitly notice a difference.Cyclics responded quicker with them. However you could simply reduce the amount of expo to get back to the same feel without them.If your cyclics arent fast enough still go with lighter padles, blades or both.I would imagine that if your flybar is very flexible it will be more noticeable.

They have been about for at least 14years. A complete waste of time.

Flybars. Who needs `em.

Flybar Stiffeners...

They work well for long 3mm flybars like the trex 600 440 flybar...you will definitely feel a difference in response...

but the anodized pieces are a waste..if you decide you want to try ito ut just get some carbon tubing and put it on the flybar...then screw the paddles on tight until they hold the carbon rod in place...

most machines have fast enough cyclics that you would never need these....but if you really want some fast and responsive cyclics then you can try this out..

I use them on a Roxxter 55 of mine just because...but it's not necessary..

TOSH....

Unbelievably...I do actually have a couple of machines with flybars these days

I put that carbon rod on the Roxxter about 2 years ago and haven't had to replace it yet....knock on wood...if I have to replace the flybar it won't get replaced

The anodised ends are a good way to stress the flybar, I would rather it can flex that put all the load onto it in one spot.
